We stayed at this guest house in one of the uppermost rooms that was just as charming as it appeared on the booking site. With a view over Whitby towards the Abbey in the distance, our room had a large metal frame sofabed and matching double. The wooden features and floor added to the country feel of the place. We...

Have just spent 3 nights here in room 7, compact double. It was very clean as was the ensuite, but a little on the small side for two people. The breakfast basket delivered to your door each morning is a nice touch with a variety of things, cereals, yogurts, fruit, fresh warm bread or croissant and boiled eggs, no rushing... More

This was our 3rd time at Elford House, and this time we stayed in Room 5 for 4 nights after our wedding. Still on "cloud 9" we were thrilled with our room; large, sumptuous bed, dining area, sofa and sideboard containing the hospitality tray, crocks and hairdryer. The whole room/ensuite shower room was immaculately clean. Some friends of ours had... More

We were in room 8 which was at the top of the house, overlooking the main road. The room was not the biggest in the house but was roomy enough for us. The en suite was small but adequate. There was some noise from the traffic if we had the window open but this was not a big problem. That's... More

Recently got back from a 3 night stay at Elford Guest House. It is a really nice b & b which was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable.
